OS/2 Work Place Shell Sample Program - Address Book

Dan Kehn (74140,3263)

This example implements a simple address book. An address book
contains "people" who have names, addresses, phone numbers, etc.

The address book is implemented as a subclass of the WPS folder
class, WPFolder. Subclassing WPFolder has the advantage of
inheriting standard folder behavior, especially the Icon,
Settings, and Details view. The address book adds an additional
view, "Indexed View", which is an alphabetically-tabbed view of
the persons within the address book.

The person object contained within the address book is
implemented as a subclass of WPAbstract. Subclassing WPAbstract
has the advantage of inheriting base WPS object behavior like
drag/drop, pop-up menu, and the Settings view. The person
class adds an additional "Info" page to the Settings view where
the user can change an address, phone number, etc.

See the README.TXT file for more details.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
